Final Examinations

Final exam schedules are available prior to registration and are published with the schedule of classes. Once students have enrolled in a course, they have made the commitment to take the scheduled final exam. The instructor may substitute a term paper or other requirement for the final exam. Students will not be allowed to alter their exam schedules because of travel plans, job interviews, special projects or scheduling preferences. Only in cases of bereavement or illness will permission be granted to reschedule a final exam date. The illness must be certified by one of the College doctors or by a physician who is not a member of the student's family, and clearance must be obtained from the Associate Dean. A student who is absent from a final exam without clearance from the Associate Dean receives a "U" in the course.
